Via Krupp is a historic path of serpentines on the south of the Isle of Capri. The walk is little less than 1.350 meters long and built into the precipice of
Monte Castiglione. It was built by the German industrialist Friedrich Alfred Krupp who spent the winter months regularly on Capri at the turn of the century.

Via Krupp was started in 1900 and was accomplished two years later shortly after Krupp’s death on November 22 nd 1902. The steep path connects the
Giardini di Augusto - the former gardens of Emperor Augustus (N 40° 32.817, E 14° 14.605) - with the Mediterranean coast. It covers about 100 m difference in altitude in eight hairpin bends. Krupp had the path constructed to get from his luxury hotel Quisisana to the Marina Piccola quickly and safely.After the Via Krupp had been closed for security reasons (falling rocks) in 1976 the path had been reopened to the public some years ago.
